DancePulp Relaunches in 2015!
Welcome to 2015! And welcome to DancePulp reloaded.
The DancePulp team has been hard at work imagining the many ways we can inspire and energize our creative community. In the coming year, we are anxious to bring you candid conversations, fresh imagery, insightful questions and important current news surrounding (but not limited to) the dance world. In dreaming about an online community that inspires connection amongst our readers, our horizon has expanded. When we see the dance community we see not only those who have made movement their livelihood and passion, but the innumerable technicians, musicians, fundraisers, directors, costumers, multimedia artists and audience members that encompass dance every day. And whereas the conversations around dance are specific and particular, dancers today are creators of all kinds, and look for diverse inspiration. They are active in leadership and administration. They are savvy about technology and media. They are involved in society and politics. They think outside the box and innovate, revive and solve.
Our mission for DancePulp in 2015 and beyond is to provide a home for dance that reflects the collaborative environment of today’s art world. We want to hear the voices of our readers. We want to share with you the wisdom of the dancers and choreographers that you love. We want to show you the inner workings of the studio and stage. We want to offer video, media, and writing that makes you proud to be a creator, and motivated to keep growing. In short, we want you to plunge deep into the thing that makes you tick.
The DancePulp team is consistently enlightened by an international scope. While founders Drew Jacoby and Joshua Martens currently live and create in The Hague, where Drew dances with Nederlands Dans Theater 1, the rest of the DancePulp team lives and works in New York City. We love dance. We have seen first hand how universal creativity is. We hope our perspective just keeps growing.
We invite you to explore our new clutter-free design, simple navigation, and newsfeed-type homepage. With a heavy emphasis on visuals and distraction-free reading we think the new experience couldn’t be better. We can’t wait to hear what you have to say.
